Simon Jordan has no sympathy for QPR after controversial defeat to Sunderland

Simon Jordan has little sympathy for QPR following their controversial exit from the Carabao Cup against Sunderland.

Rangers lost on penalties to the League One side having had a perfectly good goal ruled out for offside during the 90 minutes.

However, speaking on Talksport, former Crystal Palace owner Jordan said: “They still had opportunities. You’re playing a team from a lesser league that have just got beaten on Saturday by what is at the moment a very poor Charlton.

“QPR have a goal taken away from them that was a legitimate goal. But you’ve still got 90 other minutes of the game and a penalty shoot-out to determine the outcome.”

QPR manager Mark Warburton was furious after being made aware that Charlie Austin was well onside when finding the net from close range before the offside flag was raised.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, Warburton said: “What am I allowed to say without getting fined? It’s staggering to be that wrong on a major decision in a game of that importance.

“I saw it after my TV interview. What I said in my TV interview was that I didn’t think we could turn around and say we deserved to progress.

“But I’ve just seen that chance. I was immediately told it was offside (by the fourth official). Having seen the picture I’ve just seen – wow. That’s an appalling decision which has cost the club on so many fronts.

“You’re not talking about an inch or a marginal decision. You’re talking about feet – Charlie being onside and being given offside.

“Those type of decisions, surely you can’t get them wrong – not with what’s at stake tonight.

“At this level, with what’s at stake…I’ve never been quite so shocked on seeing a picture like that.

“To be that far onside and to be given offside, you have to question it and say ‘What did they see?’”
